Atmosphere or “Have you really been there?”

Museums, churches, palaces and sightseeing places usually doesn’t reflect the atmosphere of the place at all. The slums, “stop” signs and the people do. 

When I travel somewhere, I always visit sightseeing places in one or two days, but I also try to ride a bicycle in the city, go to the living districts, see the slums, talk with locals and so on, to see what really matters in the current place. 

Right now, I am travelling Serbia. For example, these photoes reveal much of feelings you can feel in Belgrade.  

  

And these describe Yangon pretty well.     

Now, what are your examples of such places and photoes? Where do you go in order to feel the atmosphere of the place you’re travelling? Museums, etc, obviously does not count.
